About this webinar:

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law by President Obama last month effectively reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act – but what does ESSA mean for afterschool and summer learning program providers?

Join us for an overview webinar breaking down what the new law says regarding funding and policy for afterschool and summer learning programs, whether through the 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative, STEM afterschool provisions, full service community schools, or other programs. This introductory webinar will be the first in a series of five webinars to be held in the coming months that will go into depth on a variety of programs and topics in ESSA relevant to afterschool programs and providers.
